Rise and shine, Osoyoos — It’s Friday, March 11

ODN_rise_and_shine_page_headerGood morning, Osoyoos, it’s Friday, March 11. Here’s what you need to know as your day gets started.

  • Osoyoos weather: Mainly sunny today with a chance of showers. We’re looking for a high of 10 this afternoon.
  • An Osoyoos company is making the most of the grape crush left for the compost heap during the wine-making process. Bread, pasta, sausage and cheese are on the menu.
  • The Penticton Herald is reporting a dispute involving owners at Spirit Ridge and Bellstar, the site’s development company and former management company, was settled Thursday. Watch for details this morning.
  • If you didn’t get to the Sun Bowl Arena last night for the Sun Bowl Figure Skating Club’s annual celebration, fret not. We have tons of photos.
  • A B.C. woman who almost ran over a police officer while playing with her phone has a distracted driving rap sheet as long as her charging cord.
  • From our Something Right Out of the Movies department: Toronto police rappelled from the roof of a highrise building to arrest a 60-year-old woman.
  • Got a spare $22 million lying around? You could buy Conrad Black’s Bridle Path mansion — if you can get yourself invited to the secret auction.
  • Massive flooding is wreaking havoc in the U.S. southeast. Highways are being destroyed, houses washed away and at least four people are dead. More rain is on the way.
  • A satellite launched in February 2015 and now about a million miles away from Earth captured some amazing images of this week’s solar eclipse.
  • And finally, we’ll remind you later this weekend, but just a heads up we’re headed back to Daylight Savings early Sunday morning. Spring Forward means you’ll lose an hour of sleep.

Have a great weekend, Osoyoos. See you Monday.

Have your say . . .
